Americans looking at the high gas prices should start shifting their blame at the Democrats in power. World oil prices work based upon the classical economic idea of supply and demand. Democrats have chosen over the years to substantially reduce the supply of available oil in America by prohibiting oil exploration in the lower 48 states, as well in Alaska at the Arctic National Wildlife Refuge (ANWR). In America, there is roughly 50 billion barrels of oil -- just within the continental US! Recently, in North Dakota, over 200 billion barrels of oil has been located!
There is more than enough proof that oil prices do not have to be as high as they are now. The Democrats have allowed the radical environmentalists (who are similar to a religious cult) to dictate our energy policy. The time to drill is now. You do not have to suffer from high gas prices. Ask Congress to abolish these onerous rules on oil drilling.
